Who can read the feed of my journal?

Anyone can read the feed of your journal, but this will not allow people to view any content they wouldn't be able to see normally.

Typically, this means your feed will only contain the public entries you make. However, there are two ways for people to see protected entries to which they have access:

  1. If you're accessing the feed through a web browser or any program that uses your web browser's login cookies.
  2. You can add ?auth=digest to the end of the feed URL. For instance:

    http://username.dreamwidth.org/data/rss?auth=digest
    http://username.dreamwidth.org/data/atom?auth=digest
